This weekend marks the beginning of December which just screams panic I haven’t bought any Christmas presents….

Or if you’re more like me; party season where’s the sparkle at?!

Nothing screams festive glam more than House of CB!

Luckily for us topshop in Victoria square stock a concession of the brand so you can try on all the variety to your hearts content.

Check out my five favourites for this years Christmas parties.

I mean what’s Christmas without sparkle?! Exactly nothing. This stunning mini with long sleeves is the perfect amount of party and fun. Navaz £139

This shape I love and house of CB just do it so well! It hugs your figure in all the right places and if you’re not a massive fan of your arms or chest you’re covered – literally. The rose gold colour still gives that festive feel also. Angeles £149

Can you ever go wrong with a LBD? I think not. This one screams Christmas drinks also. Safe in the front party in the back 😏 I love anything backless! The beaut detailing on the arms and the whole way down the side just finishes it off perfectly! Gizi £139

It’s yellow, need I say more? This is beautiful for anyone who has something a little more extravagant to go to this year. It still has that figure hugging feeling in all the right places and just because there’s more boob on show your legs are hidden so it’s all good. Yasbel £189

Would it even be me if I didn’t finish on a suit? I know I’ll be wearing a suit at least once this Christmas, it’s such a fun way to feel dressy and classy at the same time. This purple colour is so rich as well which just screams class! Amellina £139

Treating Yourself As Someone You Love ❤️

Following on from my “Self love ” post last week – and all the mixed bag comments with it 🙄🙊

I was kindly contributed the following post all about how to love yourself like you would anyone else in your life. Have a read and let me know what you gals think.

Treating yourself as someone you love is nice to think about but much harder to do in practice. Not only are we intrinsically self-critical on a daily basis to try and improve and operate in the world with progression, but we, unfortunately, keep our heads buried in the sand when blindingly life-changing opportunities show themselves. Some people simply prefer failing because it means they are guaranteeing their failure, as opposed to failing because of a hard attempt which can take a while to recover from. For all of these issues though, keeping that loving mentality towards yourself, as if you were a friend who only want the best for yourself, can help you overcome all of the negative self-talk which is easily accumulated.
Luckily, there are ways to do so, and we’d argue the following serve as the best:

Take Care Of Your Appearance

Of course, our blog is dedicated to being fashionably fit, and that purely means feeling and looking your best. It’s important to know how the external way you act can have a really huge impact on your internal thoughts. People often say ‘fake it until you make it,’ which can absolutely work, and should be the first method of approach if you feel like a change is needed.

However, there’s no reason as to why you should need to ‘fake it’ in the first place. It’s likely that you yourself are completely and totally enough as who you are, even if you don’t feel it. A good way to remember this if you’ve forgotten is to apply yourself with the best self-care implements, something which physically shows that you care, overcoming the mental chatter you may have experienced thus far. Using natural products which nourish your skin and give you that vibrant organic glow can be one of the best methods to work within.

 Check your local organic shop to find a range of healthcare methods which can stimulate your hair, skin, and clear up rashes. Sometimes, you might find organic ethical makeup brands which can help you feel more interconnected with the world around you while having the added benefit of simply looking amazing. Checking online for a Wide range of Nature Republic mask  products can also help you sooth your skin, especially in the approaching cold weather with awesome aloe vera therapy.

Socialize

The best way to Treat yourself right is to surround yourself with people who appreciate you and love you for who you are. Too often in life to people worry about what people think of them, especially people who have an influence on their career or activities in free time. As a result, people often stop themselves from living the life they actually want to live in exchange for a life they believe they should live to satisfy their peers. Finding people who love you and are able to accept anything you want to do are the people you need in your life. Notice that these people are never the same as ‘yes men,’ people who accept everything and never tell you to temper your actions when you’re getting out of hand. That is simply egotism, and it doesn’t work well. Your friends should always be happy to tell you when they’re worried about you. Telling the truth is always a good starting point.

Over time, your self care schedule can turn even the least confident person into someone with Self respect. Often, that’s all you need.

Do you gals relate to these points?

I would love to know!
